Stoney Creek pulled off their second vicory of the season with a strong showing south of the border. Visiting the Junior Blades, the Warriors defeated the only team below them in the Golden Horseshoe conference.
Buffalo got on the scoresheet first just before the end of the first period. Luke Maving scored at 19:12 of the opening period assisted by Nick Bruno.
Harry Polyoka scored back to back goals to start the second period for the Warriors. The pair of goals were the Hamilton-born forwards first two goals of the season. Ty Gallagher later scored for Buffalo to tie the game 2-2 by the end of the forty minutes.
The third period belonged to Stoney Creek and the Warrior took a hold of the game. Zach Nieminen started off the period with a goal, his first of three in the period. Ancaster native Alexander Zaccaria also scored for the Warriors in the third period as well as Harry Polyoka, who completed a hat trick of his own, and Blake Luscombe who rounded out the period at 17:05 with his first goal of the season.
Stoney Creek outshot the Blades 48-29 through the three periods and Brendan Polasek made 27 saves for the victory.
Lucas Triemstra, Parsa Monsef, Marco Mattina, Luke Zupan, Ryan Lewis,
Jordan Thomas and Jake Milligan had assists in the game. Aleksander Panov, Cordell James and Blake Luscombe each had two assists. Interestingly enough both neither Polyoka and Nieminen, who had hat tricks on the night, had an assist.
The victory gives the Warriors two in the season so far and have five points. The Buffalo Junior Blades are winless this season and have lost all thirteen of their games this season.
Both of Stoney Creek’s this season have come at the expense of the Buffalo Junior Blades.
Amazingly even though Stoney Creek has only won two games the team from Guelph is actually faring worse and has only a single win.
Next up for the Warriors will host the Welland Jr Canadians this Thursday night at 7:30pm from Valley Park Arena.
